Introducing Pharmacogenomics Testing

Pharmacogenomics, the fascinating fusion of pharmacology and genomics, discovers the impact of our genes on our response to medicines. How our body responds to certain medications is largely dependent on our genetic makeup. And at Star Medical Lab, with our Pharmacogenomics Testing service, we use these insights for customized and precise healthcare decisions.

Learn More About Your Unique Genetic Response

DNA is powerful and we, at Star Medical Lab, believe in its power. With the application of Pharmacogenomics Testing, we delve deeper into your genetic blueprint and provide crucial information to your healthcare provider, who can then make informed treatment decisions that are customized according to your body and your needs. Imagine fewer side effects to medication and higher medication efficacy – that’s what we’re talking about!

How is the test used?

Pharmacogenetic testing is used as follows:

  • To discover which medication could be effective for you 
  • Find out the right dosage according to your personalized need
  • Predict whether the given medication will or will not have a serious side effect 

What Can a Pharmacogenomic Testing Do?

Your body boasts thousands of genes inherited from your parents, some of which are responsible for how you metabolize specific medications. Our pharmacogenomic test equips your healthcare provider with additional insights to make informed choices for patients with certain medical conditions. It’s especially beneficial for individuals receiving medications to address depression, anxiety, and certain types of cancer.

Who Needs Pharmacogenomics Testing?

A Pharmacogenomics Testing may be ordered by your healthcare provider before starting a certain medicine. You might also need it if you have been prescribed a medication which has not shown desired results or for a medication that is causing serious side effects.

It is, however, important to note that Pharmacogenetic tests are not available for all medicines as yet. Examples of common medicines that have pharmacogenetic tests are as follows:

  • Abacavir, for HIV treatment
  • Carbamazepine, for epilepsy treatment
  • Tamoxifen, for breast cancer treatment
  • Warfarin and clopidogrel, blood thinners
